World Book Day

We showed props and acted out events from our favourite non-fiction and fiction books. These included Jurassic World texts, Jacobite Rebellion stories, crime fiction, Scottish characters, football tales and  fantasy novels to name a few.

 

 

Hot Seat

Hot Seating is when a character is questioned by the group about his or her background, behaviour and motivation. The method may be used for developing a role or further understanding of a character.

Magnus – We took turns to choose characters to put in the hot seat. We asked them questions and it was fun to see what people thought about different characters and why they were like that. I went in the hot seat as Auggie and I found it fun but I had to think of different answers.

Precepts

Our class novel highlighted precepts, which are rules intended to regulate behaviour or thought. Today we have been writing our own positive precepts.

Science and Numeracy –

Access East Renfrewshire’s Libraries Website and use the class login . When you first open the link select Children’s > School Children > Homework and this will allow you to open the link to the Britannica Library site which East Renfrewshire libraries pay to access. This allows you to open more information than on the Britannica website, and ensures your search is safer than on google.  You are also able to access ebooks and audiobooks through the Borrowbox link on the ERC Libraries website.

LIBRARY BRITANNICA LOGIN

You are going to research one of the eight planets of our solar system. You have to display the information you find in an interesting and creative way.

You must include:

  • The name of the planet: Does its name have any meaning?
  • How the planet was discovered.
  • The planet’s distance from the sun. What size is the planet? Can you compare this to something else to help us imagine its size?
  • The length of the planet’s days and years.
  • The average temperature on the planet. Does it have seasons?
  • Which materials the planet is predominantly made from.
  • A description of the planets appearance, especially any interesting features.
  • Information about moons orbiting the planet. If there are any can you include some more information, for example: how many, when were they discovered, do they have names, are they similar to the planet they orbit?

Make your display as exciting and interactive as you can. You will present your findings to groups on Friday the 14th of February so DO NOT FORGET TO BRING YOUR DISPLAY WITH YOU. Have fun!

  • You can also include other information you discover! (e.g. How much does the average person weigh on the planet (find out about its gravitational pull)? Have we sent any probes, satellites or rovers to the planet?)

 

 

 

Homework 25th November, Due Friday 29th November

Spelling – Identify and spell words using the spelling rules for Week 8 and 9 words on spellingcity.com. See previous homework for further details.

Reading Passport – Begin your Reading Passport by completing your basic information, writing about the book you are currently reading, setting yourself 3 interesting reading challenges and writing about your den building challenge from last week.

Numeracy – Group measure task sheet. Complete this work in your numeracy homework jotter. If calculations are included please show working as discussed in class.

Science – Be on the look out for chemical reactions you may see everyday. Clues that a chemical reaction may have taken place, rather than just a physical reaction, include colour changes, gas released or texture change. At least one new substance must be formed and usually you can not go back to the original state. We discussed some examples and exceptions this week in class. Can you write four more in your numeracy jotter under your maths work?

Reading to P2

This morning we read Fairy Stories we wrote with Mrs Jamieson to Mrs Wallace’s class. They really enjoyed our stories!
